Excerpt: There have been more rumors surrounding the BlackBerry 9000 aptly named “Bold” than a pop star on a Friday night in Malibu. What I thought I saw at a trade show turned out to be a vardoger. Sorry, for the lack of the Norwegian "o". For those who are not in to Norwegian myths, a vardoger is a phantom double which precedes the actual person with the same footsteps, scents and characteristics. It turns out the Bold 9000 may be better than the hype.
Excerpt: Sticking to what it does best, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 is designed for email on the go and comes packed with features. While many smart phone fans are running to the touchscreen hills, the Bold offers a strong alternative. What we like The Bold 9000's screen is one of the sharpest and brightest screens we've ever seen.

The multimedia experience, while on a basic level, shows great potential. Last, but not least, the QWERTY keyboar...
Cons: The only thing I was really concerned about was the sturdiness of the device, which is nowhere near its predecessors'. The somewhat high price could also become an obstacle to the phone's possible success in the market, but that could be explained by the fact that it targets a supposedly rich class – businessmen.
Excerpt: In years past, BlackBerry has been innovating with product after product. With the new family of BlackBerry Bold, Storm, and 8900, they have a great lineup for the rest of the year. Today we’re taking a look at the sleek new BlackBerry Bold on AT&T.

BlackBerry Bold 9000
is easily the best-looking keyboard-based smartphone on the market, and the software it includes makes it the best BlackBerry yet.
That doesn't make it the best smartphone available, though. There are still some areas RIM needs to work on if it wants to reach that point. It's weak web browser and its limited support for fonts are some of the things holding it back.
